Steep 1/2 mile climb for distant view of delicate arch. If you are going to hike, take the trail that actually goes to the arch.

Upper Delicate Arch Viewpoint is a great little walk. It is a little bit of an uphill climb but it's really a great walk especially if you're with smaller kids or anyone who is not in the best of shape. It may be too difficult...More

You can view Delicate Arch from the lower level within 100m from the car park. The track is suitable for wheel chairs and those with mobility problems. For a better view, there is an upper viewing point, this takes about 15 mins to reach and...More

Upper Delicate Arch Viewpoint starts from beside the Lower Delicate Arch Viewpoint. It will put you closer to the Delicate Arch, but it is still at some distance from the end of this path. It is a rather strenuous hike. You must take many many...More

Trail was short with some steep parts. If you aren't able to go up the full trail, be sure to see delicate arch from this one. Good photos can be taken from the trail especially with a zoom lens.

This may sound negative, but the viewpoint is nothing compared to making the long walk to see the arch up close and personal. I saw the arch from here on our first visit to the Arches. I got some nice photos though my not-so-wonderful zoom...More

The Delicate Arch is very far away unless you have a great camera. If you can, you should hike to the arch. It is a strenuous hike but the views at the arch are breathtaking. However, we only had a short time in the park,...More
